should, should, should, should, should

This piece was supposed to be about relinquishing the shoulds.

It really looks like I'm depicting the bride of shoulds instead - barbed wire tiara, tangled should bouquet and all. A marriage made in hedoublehockeysticks! (Kinda like my last one! haha!!!)

Its Sunday evening.

I sit here contemplating some more shoulds.

I should dust my room.
I should cook dinner.
I should get this crap out of my living room.
I should eat healthier.
I should fill out those new mortgage forms.
I should go running.
I should pay some bills.
I should watch that netflix movie.
I should do more art!
I should stop buying craft supplies!
I should pack up that stuff for Suzie-Q.

The list goes on...

I should do some more work on my shoulds. LOL!!!

I did complete a piece in honor of National Scrapbook Day (which was Saturday)...

Scrapped my fav pix of eeebie jeebie. Julie (a bloggy pal from SiStv) sent me the placemat so I could scraplift her piece. I had fun playing with cork and painting the dragonflies.

I used to visit the Cooke-Willis' after exercise. Ian loved my aerobics shoes, would waddle over, put 'em on and walk around the house. He also loved this one particular tie dyed leotard I had. He'd lift the edge of my shirt and check to see if I was wearing it and say "I lay on your stommy?" Then we'd get on the floor and he'd lay across my stomach. I know, I never figured out why he was so fascinated with that leotard! The color, the sweatiness? Maybe it was just the bonding!

I do miss that little pot belly and those sweet curls!!! He's way too big to lay across my stomach now, LOL!


Other stuff this weekend??? Pretty boring and lame, so I'll spare you the agony and not list it all here! I've been hanging around the house. (Avoiding large, germy crowds and bacteria laden gym equipment. Don't want to get H1N1 Influenza.) Watched lots of gud movies and hockey!

Looking forward to another art class, volunteer project at Second Harvest fud bank, running amok, and maybe some more art. I might even be able to delete some more shoulds ; .)
